 Hello everyone,

I would like to create a website that has a button, and whenever the
button is pushed, an application or service on my phone will begin.

Could someone please push me in the right direction for where I should
look to accomplish this?

 You can use hooked javascript to call Activity for your website.

 You can also build an intent: URI.  Note that the browser automatically
tacks the BROWSABLE category on to any such intents, so you can only reach
activities that have explicitly said that support that category.  See the
Intent documentation for the API to convert an Intent object in to its
String URI representation.
